Who doesn’t love a happy ever after?

These two are so frustrating in ALL the good ways, and both need intervention that fortunately comes to break through the walls of hurt, and bring them together.  A wonderful set-up for the series, with heat, heart and some clever dialogue mixes with the chaos of weddings from a new perspective.

A perfectly delightful lighthearted and funny story. The quirky characters manage to intrigue, amuse, interfere and support our budding couple of Harry and Magenta with equal measures of poke, prod, tease and outright trickery.  Add in a series of ‘you’ll only get this in small towns’ humor, a touch of prankster and a dash of the twisted progression that is familiar with a novel by Henderson and you’ve got a great read for anywhere.

Have you ever read a series that got BETTER with each book, and each one becomes your new favorite? Heartbreaker Bay is just that series for me! One of those stories that just gets better as  you read. Each of the secondary characters brings that sense of ‘family you make’ to the story, supportive and protective, these are the friends everyone wants in their corner.  A wonderful start to a new series – go grab this now for plenty of smiles with a few tears, sure to leave you smiling.

As satisfying as warn gingerbread with a lemon drizzle (try it – I promise it’s the best thing you’ve ever had except good chocolate) this slow-growing story just nestles into your heart and leaves you satisfied.  Another winner from Linfoot – stories that grab your heart and don’t let go.
